The Board of Directors of Ethos Gold Corp. today announces, with great sadness, the sudden death of its founder, President and Chief Executive Officer, Gary Freeman.
Gary was prolific venture capital financier and company builder, and contributed to the success of many Canadian listed issuers. He was a promoter in the very best sense of the word, and was known for his unique brand of charm and sense of humour. Notably, he was formerly the President and Chief Executive Officer of Pediment Gold Corp. from 2005 to 2011, raising funding and executing on various exploration campaigns, leading to the discovery of the San Antonio deposit, the purchase of the La Colorada mine, and the sale of Pediment to Argonaut Gold Inc. for approximately $140 million.
Craig Roberts, a director of Ethos, commented, "We are greatly saddened by Gary's passing. The Board and the Company are indebted to Gary for his leadership, boundless energy and dedication, and significant contributions to Ethos during his tenure. He leaves behind many grateful colleagues and good friends. The Board's thoughts are with Gary's family at this very difficult time."
Mr. Roberts, has been appointed by the Board to serve as President and Chief Executive Officer on an interim basis to oversee daily operations and corporate strategy. Mr. Roberts will act in such capacity until the Board identifies an appropriate candidate for the position of President and Chief Executive Officer.
